    i may have describe the noise incorrectly. it is definitely not normal because they would never be able to sell another re-frig if this noise was normal. the noise is like a metal banging against other metal when the compressor shuts off which last about a seconds or two, the compressor seems to vibrate severly when it stops and thats when noise occurs again not always. thanks

The gurgling sound is normal. When the compressor shuts off the refrigerant is still flowing through the system until the pressure equalizes... probably 5-10 minutes

    Oh... that's not good news... Sounds like you have a bad compressor and when it shuts off the torque is causing it to jump internally and hit the inside of the compressor case. Only way to fix is to have a tech replace the compressor. Sorry about the bad news.

Very loud noises


Check the rubber mounts under the compressor and look for any lines touching the sides of the cabinet. The gurgling and clunking are often normal. good luck. Roger

How do I stop the loud knocking noises coming from my refridgerator?


Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.

I have a GE Profile Side by Side TPX21PR/Tpx21BR. The freezer is not freezing ice cream or even bread, but the meat seems fine. There has been a loud noise emanating from the unit for over a year.


Hi,

Kindly provide few more details so that i could provide more appropriate solution to your problem :-

1. How old is the unit?
2. Kindly hear the noise - Is it from the freezer section or upper back or lower back of the refrigerator?
3. Do you hear the compressor running?
4. Any problem with temperature in lower section or is it limited to freezer section?

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The compressor motor on our GE Profile side by side has been making a loud banging sound when it shuts off. Now, it doesn't shut off at all. I notice some ice formed in the back of the freezer.


two seperate issues,the springs within the compressor housing that support the piston have broken,can only be resolved by replacing compressor....in regards to the ice build up,you have a defrost problem.defrost issues can usually be resolved for about 120-160.00 through a qualified servicer

Refrigerator makes loud noise every once in a while


I m not to good at hearing up close these days. I need a description of the sound and where its coming form high, low, back front, top back?

1 thing refrigerators can do is gurgle when they shut off and this is normal.
Another is the inside fan (evaporator fan) can be whirling and the bearings going out and it will make all kinds of racket. Open the freezer then the refrigerator door next time and see if its louder in 1 place than the other. Does it make this noise when it stops? A compressor has internal mounting springs and this can cause a knock or heavy thud when it cuts off sometimes but it can still work for a long time.

Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.
